Little known beautiful European themed park of Japan. You need to spend a night here to be able to fully enjoy the park. Hotels are available surrounding the park. Best to stay until closing hours as there is virtually no queue from 7-10pm. Highly recommended!

There are 4 hotel for tourist come to reserve. I stay at Robot hotel that very good for my new experience to check in and check out with a robot and I can walk from hotel to the park isn't far.

House ten Bosch is definitely a fun day out. You pay 7000 Yen for a one day pass that includes all rides. However rides is a big word. If you go there as an adult it's maybe better to get the 4500 yen ticket. The rides are mostly there for kids. It's mainly walking around Holland. Being from Holland myself I found it nice and quirky and found it worth going. We made some cool pictures that made some people to think we were actually back home again. Good fun for half a day. Maybe better in spring or summer when it's more alive. You can also rent a bike to get around. But walking is very easy to do. Don't expect any traditional Dutch food or candy :( hahahaha really wanted some drop (licorice).

Really beautiful Dutch town in Japan. It's really big with a lot of games including VR. They also have multiple restaurants and coffee shops. The illumination around the place are just as nice.

It's okay. You could say a poor man's Disneyland and I'm not a huge fan of Disneyland. No real attractions that are worth visiting for. I think it is mainly a flower park and the attractions were an after thought. If you want to feel like you are in Holland, stroll around looking at flowers and enjoying a coffee then I would recommend it but otherwise not really worth the effort. We went to see the winter illuminations, which were nice but nothing amazing. The staff can be hit and miss. Not like in Disneyland were everyone, even down to the street cleaners are super friendly. At Huis Ten Bosch, we were rarely greeted with a smile and had to ask most times how to use the attractions. The customer service is definitely not up to the standard you would except from a theme park.

Can you imagine that Huis Ten Bosch was originally a farmland that was reclaimed from the sea. The land was filled with sluge, so the first thing they had to do was to improve the soil quality. They dug the land, composted it, and planted carefully selected 700,000 plants. Now, there is an eco friendly, environmentally conscious theme park. The garbage from hotels and restaurants is converted to fetilizer that is used in the park, and the waste water from the park is clearler than the water in Omura Bay, which the park faces. The park depends on the solar power generation for its electric supply. Huis Ten Bosch is not mere a theme park but the town of our future.Read moreClose
